KEMM29 Molecular spectroscopy - methods and applications

The course is worth 15 credits and runs full time during the second half of the spring semester.

The course introduces a variety of optical spectroscopy tools and methods for studying molecules and materials. Electronic processes that can be excited by light are considered. We discuss on an advanced level how these methods together with data analysis are used to investigate chemical and physical properties. Additionally, some spectroscopy skills are practiced is in a couple of laboratory sessions.
